Quality 1st Concrete Case Studies: Concrete Slab Settlement in Englishtown, NJ
The homeowner of a single family home located in Englishtown, NJ had several concrete settlement issues around his pool in the backyard. When researching his option to fix the problem he came across Quality Concrete and decided to inquire about the PolyLEVEL Polyurethane Injection System. The homeowner was very fed up with the issue as summer 2013 was approaching and he had the problem since 1995. Quality Concrete provided him with a free estimate appointment on concrete raising for his slab that had settlement of up to 5 inches. The settling slabs around the pool area began to alarm the homeowner for not only the appearance of his home, but more importantly the safety of his children and family.
Quality Concrete remedied the homeowner’s problem with the use of the PolyLEVEL (TM) Polyurethane Injection System. Our head PolyLEVEL (TM) Specialist Joe Nero drilled penny sized holes into the settling and sunken parts of the concrete slab around the pool’s patio. He then was able to use the specialized equipment to inject the polyurethane under the concrete and raise it back to its original position.Once the foam was injected into the concrete it expanded and hardened causing the concrete slab to raise.
With the use of the PolyLEVEL (TM) system, Quality Concrete was able to stabilize and lift the settling concrete slab(s) up 5 inches toward its original elevation. The PolyLEVEL (TM) system was installed in less than half a day, with absolutely no mess left behind. The fast installation process gave the homeowner peace of mind and left him very happy knowing that his family can safely use their pool patio, just in time for summer fun.
